The unlocked HTC U11 will receive its Android 8.0 Oreo update on Monday, November 27, according to HTC’s Mo Versi on Twitter. This news comes just two weeks after the U11 in Taiwan started receiving its Android 8 update.

By now you’re probably aware what new features will arrive with the Android Oreo update. In case you need a refresher, you can check out our full 8.0 review right here.

So far, there aren’t too many other Android phones running Oreo. According to the latest Android version distribution numbers, Oreo is only installed on .3% of all Android devices. All of Google’s Pixel phones are running Oreo, as are the OnePlus 3/3T and Nokia 8. There are also Oreo beta programs in place for a handful of other devices like the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG V30Essential Phone, and OnePlus 5, so we should see that .3% jump up quite a bit over the next couple months.

But what about HTC’s other devices? Back in August the company announced that the HTC U Ultra and HTC 10 will be updated to Oreo, though we don’t have any more details at this time.

If you own an unlocked U11, be sure to leave a comment when you receive your update. We’ll let you know when the update begins rolling out.
